I’m still in the wrap-up stages of my Whole 30. I can’t say I feel “tiger blood” ish, but I do feel pretty good, and I’m determined to keep eating well after the Whole 30 ends. At the same time, I know that I haven’t really “cracked it” – I need to pick up more recipes. And I know that I’m going to have to try reintroductions of foods I’m avoiding on the AIP. And, lurking, I have the worry that if the reintroductions fail, and I have to eat like this long-term, what then?
One thing that I’ve been finding a bit annoying about the Whole 30 is that most Whole 30 recipes aren’t suitable for people following the AIP. BY most, I mean around 95%. It’s really hard to find recipes that I can eat, other than quite plain meat/fish-with-herbs and vegetables-with-herbs-or-lemon. Even Melissa Joulwan found it hard to enjoy food on the AIP!
Then, today, I found these.

Now, obviously I haven’t really tried the recipes out yet, as I’ve only just found them, but I’m so desperate for recipe ideas that I’m posting them anyway, in case others feel the same. And, equally obviously – check for yourself that they really are AIP-compliant, especially if you already know what foods you need to avoid.
Off I go to maybe make some more varied food!

Ooooh! I’m bookmarking those links!
I’m eating AIP, low FODMAP, and it can feel pretty darn restrictive. I too wrote about how finding recipes was annoying … so much, in fact, I was going to stick to the same staples no matter how boring instead of trying to scour the ‘net for recipes that fit.
I’m only on day 17 this time, but I’m already thinking of reintroduction. Because I’m avoiding so many foods typically allowed (with cause), my reintroduction is probably going to be a lot longer than 10 days … including tomatoes, coconut products, and a dozen other things giving me trouble previously. My fingers are crossed this round of healing will expand the list of things I can eat without trouble; if not, I’ll eat slightly relaxed Whole30.)
Yes, it’s hard getting non-boring food with AIP. Good luck, I hope it goes well for you. I’d love to hear back any recipes that you love! Dx
